Micro Devices and Physical Principles

The area of Micro Devices and Physical Principles involves understanding and applying fundamental physical principles to develop revolutionary new electronic, sensing, and optical devices -- for instance, graphene and other 2D materials.  Research includes nanofabrication and electromagnetic design for photonic circuits, ultrafast lasers, quantum device structures, and plasma processing.

A "hands-on" emphasis supports collaborations with local industry and nearby Brookhaven National Laboratory.
